I grew up on a farm in North Dakota and own some farmland there. I planted my first small crop of quinoa this spring on this land. I attended undergraduate school at North Dakota State University competing in the pole vault and decathlon on their track team. I received a Master’s degree from Washington State University in Pullman and spent 2 and a half years working at the Naval Subbase in Bangor Washington.
